Timberwolves Battle, Come Up Short Against Rockets
Summary of 2 articles · Updated Nov 24, 2013
Even though the Timberwolves beat the Rockets in points in the paint and finished with the most points off of turnovers in franchise history in 17 years , the Timberwolves just did not have it and fell to 8-6 on the season. The Timberwolves played from behind all night, but they did hold their own. The Rockets got out to an early 8-0 lead, but the lead soon disappeared as the Timberwolves brought the deficit to five behind a Kevin Martin three halfway through the first. Kevin Love grabbed one more double-double Saturday night, but the Timberwolves ultimately fell 112-101 to the Rockets. The Timberwolves will look to get back on track on Monday when they play the, ah crap, Pacers. Welp. The Wolves seemed a bit out of sync all night, and although it wasn’t their worst night offensively, their 40 percent shooting failed to hold against Houston’s 52 percent.
